  1. Fit Bits and workout wristbands seem to be everywhere in the last year. They are super convenient , and very satisfying when one can hit their daily goal. Sadly, I think in the near future cellphones will share the ability to record the data just as well as the wristwatches currently do, which would mean trouble for this market. iPhone already has an app that can track your daily heath. If it can improve and become more accurate, it can wipe out this market all together. I compare this to when iPhone came out with it’s external speaker built into the phone. This quickly whipped out the portable speaker market as they had to switch to bluetooth style systems which were less popular and more expensive.

    1. I do have to agree that this device might be replace by our smart phones. However, this would not happened pretty soon because this market is growing up slowly but smart and that is why their market it is predict to increase within at least the next few years.
